What do you do?

"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."

~George Orwell

"Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves." - D.H. Lawrence

"Do the right things because the right things will happen. Don't just do the right things because the wrong things will happen if you don't" -Pete R. Pan

People ask me what do I do that's right to oppose all that is wrong, the more important question is what do you do? We ought to be living right and holding those accountable who aren't living right. I think it's even easier than that, if we all start living right there won't be room for anyone to live wrong. Hiding out in the woods is fine for a last ditch effort to prolong the trip. But why do we let a few that choose to live VERY wrong to do so at our expense?

1. Not everyone knows how wrong things are. Information sharing is very important. Once you know and develop some anger by knowing, you can do something productive with that energy.

2. Pimping and Prostitution, as long as we let them pay off our "representation" to bend us over nothing will change. Nobody seems to remember how good real freedom feels. What's more important, slaving away the best years of your life saving money to grow old, fat, and lazy on, or spending those years getting out and enjoying life? Instead of that stupid saying "who ever dies with the most toy wins" (which merchants and creditors love) we should celebrate who ever does the most good for everybody. Instead of thinking small time individual greed we should be greedy on a global scale. I want this whole damn world to be doing great, then me my neighbor and everyone I know will be having a good time and it will be a lot more fun. Its easy to steal from others to prop yourself up but it just makes the world shitty. If we are such a smart species can't we figure that out?

3. Giving up, Damn it who said it's time to give up and roll over? The fight is just beginning. Remember there is a lot more of us than there are of them. By following in their footsteps we validate their greed. Stuff isn't important, it comes and goes. Stuff bogs you down, the more you get the bigger container you need to put it all in. When your old and can't wipe your own ass how are you going to feel about your life? Is it really all about accumulating massive amounts of crap or is there something more to this experience?

What do I do? I scream at the top of my lungs of the things I don't agree with because not doing so is consent. What do you do?
